Hi Jazzy
This is a common problem caused by Epsons attempts at making it harder for the user to get cheaper 'generic' types of cartridges or to fill them yourself. I have refilled my CX3200 cartridges dozens of times, both Black and Colour types. Once you have filled them they require resetting using a simple electronic device that is held against the chip contacts at the rear of the cartridge. An led will switch from red to green indicating that the cartridge has been reset. All very simple and avaids those messages informing you that the cartridge is either empty or incompatible. In the UK these resetters cost about 7 pounds. Find a web link to one of the suppliers below. I believe there are quite a few around depending on where you live. Best of luck Ibbotsnm

Turn your printer off so it can reset the cartridge. there is a computer chip on the outside of the cartridge. be careful how you handel it. if you touch it it in anyway, the chip that is, you may have to replace the cartridge again. if that doesn't work shut down and restart your computer. it may take awhile to boot and reset everything to normal.

The E05 error indicates that the Fine ink cartridges are either not correctly installed or isn't recognized by the printer. Make sure that the correct CL-211 and PG-210 cartridges are installed. (Refilled or re-manufactured cartridges may not be correctly recognized.)

Check if the cartridges are in the correct slots and that the locking cover is fully seated. (Lift up the scanner unit, lock the support and wait for the carrier to stop moving before checking the cartridges.)

Replace the cartridges with new ones. If that doesn't solve the problem, the printer needs service. If it is under warranty, contact Canon. Otherwise, decide if the service is worthwhile. (There can be a couple of parts that could be at fault; however on this model they are not user serviceable parts.)

I hope this helps.

First you have to make sure that you are using the correct ink cartridges. If they are the correct cartridges, simply take the out and re-insert then tightly.

I don't know how to change the ink bought this printer from a guy at work no manual


Lift the scanner cover from the right-hand side of the MFC until
it locks securely into the open position.

If one or more ink cartridges are empty, for example Black, the
LCD shows Ink Empty Black and Cover is Open.

Pull the ink cartridge hook toward you and remove the ink
cartridge for the color shown on the LCD.

Open the new ink cartridge bag for the color shown on the LCD,
and then take out the ink cartridge.

Remove the cartridge covers.

Each color has its own correct position. Keep the ink cartridge
in an upright position when you insert it into slot. Press down on
the ink cartridge until the hook snaps over it.

Lift the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the
scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.

If you replaced an ink cartridge while Near Empty was
displayed on the LCD, the LCD may ask you to verify that it was
a brand new one. Example: Did You Change Blck? 1.Yes
2.No. For each new cartridge you installed, press 1 on the dial
pad to automatically reset the ink dot counter for that color. If the
ink cartridge you installed is not a brand new one, please be
sure to select 2.

If you wait until Ink Empty message is displayed on the LCD,
the MFC will automatically reset the ink dot counter.

If the Install message is on the display after you have
installed ink cartridges, check that the ink cartridges are
installed properly.

Hope that helps you!

E3 – Paper jam error.
How to correct, fix: Remove the jammed paper. If paper jams frequently occur, check the following:
1. Confirm there is no foreign material inside the machine.
2. Confirm only recommended paper is installed.
3. Confirm paper is installed properly.
4. Confirm the maximum number of sheets in the auto sheet feeder is within the paper limit mark.

E4 – Empty ink tank.
How to correct, fix: An ink cartridge is empty. To cancel printing, press the <Stop/Reset> button. To continue printing, press <Black> or <Color> button. After printing completes, replace the empty ink cartridge. Printing with an empty ink cartridge may cause the machine to malfunction.

E5 – The ink cartridge(s) is not installed. The ink cartridge(s) cannot be recognized.
How to correct, fix: Make sure to install both ink cartridges even when you set the machine to use only one ink cartridge in printing. If one of the ink cartridges is missing, this error can occur.

E7 – The ink cartridge is not installed in the appropriate position.
How to correct, fix: The ink cartridge is not installed in the proper position. Install each ink cartridge in the proper position.

E8 – The ink wasteabsorber is almost full.
How to correct, fix: The waste ink absorber is getting full. Press the <Black> or <Color> button to clear the error and continue printing. Printing can continue until the waste ink absorber becomes full. If the waste ink absorber becomes full, the machine will require service. The waste ink absorber is a part inside the machine, which absorbs ink used in the cleaning operations.

E9 – A specified period of time has elapsed without receiving a response from the digital camera. A print mode compliant with PictBridge is not selected. A specified period of time has elapsed without receiving a response from the digital camera.
How to correct, fix: The machine cannot communicate with the connected camera. Disconnect the cable between the machine and the camera to clear the error. Check the following items, then try printing again.
1. Confirm that the camera you are using supports PictBridge or Canon Bubble Jet Direct. If the camera does not support either one, the machine cannot print directly from the camera.
2. Set the camera in PictBridge print mode before it is connected to the machine. This is required before printing for some cameras that support PictBridge. Please refer to the camera instructions for more information about procedures required before and after connection to the machine.
3. There may have been no response from the camera for the prescribed time. Re-connect the cable between the camera and the machine.

E14 – Ink cartridge cannot be recognized.
How to correct, fix: Unsupported ink cartridge may be installed.

E15 – Install only recommended ink cartridges.
How to correct, fix: Install only recommended ink cartridges.

E16 – The ink level cannot be correctly recognized or detected.
How to correct, fix: A used ink cartridge may be installed, or the ink cartridge is empty. Press the <Black> or <Color> button, to clear the error and continue printing without replacing the ink cartridge. However, the remaining ink amount cannot be detected properly, so the function to detect the remaining ink amount does not operate.

E19 – Scanning failed error.
How to correct, fix: Scanning a document failed. Check if the document is placed in the correct orientation position and try the operation again.

E5 and 2,114,0 errors on Canon MP160


I got this Error 2,114,0 with my MP210 and none of the above fixes worked. This is how I have got it working again: Press and hold the maintenance (picure of spanner and screw driver) button and the reset button ( Inverted red triangle) together for five seconds or more. The flashing error code 1 and 6 will then stop flashing and replaced by a print copy no 1. The printer/scanner is reset and the scanner works.
